Attempted Bloggery looks at an early version of Thurber’s last published drawings (they appeared on the Time magazine Thurber cover story, July 9, 1951). See it here.
From the Time piece:
“After a lapse of several years, during which he did not draw at all, Thurber is drawing again (see cover). He works with chalk on black paper, preferably just at sundown on clear days. About the porch of his Connecticut home, where he has his drawing board set up, drawings are stacked along with stove wood.”
— Thurber also made it to the cover of Newsweek, and The Atlantic.
Today’s Daily Cartoon
Today’s Daily cartoon (groundhogian of course) is by David Ostow, whose first New Yorker cartoon appeared in November of 2018. Link here to his website.
